Internationalism or Russification?

"One young Ukrainian poet has written a poem with these painful words:

I bear no malice towards any people
Towards no people on this earth do I bear malice.
Why then is it ever more difficult
To live on earth in spiritual plurality?

This is the grief of many Ukrainians."

Ivan Dzyuba, Internationalism or Russification? (1965)

Ivan Dzuba was a groundbreaking Ukrainian dissident under the soviet regime.
